Unique Culture & Color! The Zamboanga Peninsula (region 9), is the only region in Mindanao that is surrounded by water on almost all sides. Although not one of the safest places for tourists in the Philippines due to ongoing tensions between the Philippine government and the Moro people of the region, and lets not forget about the occasional earthquake or two; there is still an undeniably amazing culture and history in this land. Perhaps best known for it’s great number of ethnic communities, this fact has molded the peninsula into what it is today. The region is also known for the popular Zamboanga Peninsula Medical Center that offers top-quality medical care to the entire region.
Although there are many great cities and villages in this region, not all are appealing to tourists. The recommended tourist destinations include: Zamboanga City, Zamboanga Sibugay, Dipolog and Dapitan City in Zamboanga del Norte, Zamboanga del Sur, Isabela City, Pagadian City, and Santa Cruz Island. The top 3 destinations by popularity are pictured below.
